Though you may not be sure what growing up is all about, you’ve figured out this much: It has something to do with getting rid of your college dorm room light fixtures and not having hair that looks like a bird’s nest.
But what about having a light fixture that looks like a bird’s nest?
That’s very grown-up, indeed — assuming you’re talking about one from Able Interior Workshop. They’ve created a line of lamps in imaginative shapes for every lighting need: The bird’s nest- and raindrop-shaped pendants hang from the ceiling, the large-scale Bloom lamp mounts on the wall, and the mushroom- and cactus-shaped lamps fit perfectly on a desk or side table.
Each one is made from fine wood veneers — ash, walnut, maple, ebony, zebrano, or anigre — that give them a mature, sophisticated feel. But the shapes are super fun and whimsical, so no one can accuse you of trying to grow up too fast.
Not that that’s ever been a problem for you.
